We were promised the heaviest snowfalls for years. The Met Office issued a severe weather warning. Colleagues in work were discussing yesterday how they are going to get to the office today. So what did we get? A bit of slushy snow – nothing much at all! As I write at 0830 GMT, the outside temperature is 5 degrees and the snow is melting fast – the picture above is my street in Walworth this morning. Seems matters might have been more serious elsewhere (see this BBC article), but that might also just be the Brits being useless at coping with snow.
